 Frequency of Intention  Aluminum foil, Arduino Duemilanove (a single-board micro controller computer chip,) conductive carbon and silver paint, power adapter, speakers and wires on canvas, 65” x 28”, 2009     I began experimenting with the use of Arduino, for the purpose of facilitating a dialogue across the auditory and the visual within the realm of painting. Initially forming the idea through Isaac Newton, who proposed that musical tones and color tones shared common frequencies—as did Goethe in his book Theory of Color, I wanted to study a sensation produced in one modality when a stimulus is applied to another modality: for example, when the hearing of a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain color.   Through conductive paint, it picks up the electricity of the viewer when approached. The chip is programmed to emit AbC#, a note tribute to the opening chord of French composer Olivier Messiaen’s Prelude. Messiaen himself was concerned with visualizing color in music and symmetrical composition.            
 Conversation (with Gorgias and Socrates)  Acrylic, coffee, spray paint, vinyl, watercolor on canvas, 45x70 inches, 2009     Gorgias was a legendary asshole sophist who was able to convince anyone to his viewpoint, whether it was morally sound or not. He often took unpopular and ridiculous positions just to prove his point and accumulated considerable wealth through charging lots of money for his performance; he erected a gold statue of himself in the public temple. Plato disliked Gorgias-kind rhetorician, clearly in opposition making point of philosophy is different from rhetoric or oratory. However I think Socrates had a special respect for Gorgias for his twisted character.     The circular geometric symbol in the painting is called Flower of Life.
